... My name is Todd Hughes, and I envision maps of the future that are far more powerful. Imagine a map that represents not two spatial dimensions, but three. Imagine a map that details, at the highest levels of precision, location, shape, texture, temperature, elevation, color: all of the things your eyes can see and many of the things they can't. Imagine that information for every object in a region: every building, window, door, roof, fire escape, dumpster, pothole, manhole cover . . . everything. Imagine that map with imagery from right now, not months or years ago, and with the ability to turn back the clock to see what's changed. Imagine a map that not only shows the route but also highlights where the enemy may attack along the way. And imagine holding this exquisite microcosm of the Earth in the palm of your hand. This is the Mapping Revolution, and it promises to change forever the very idea of the map. ...

RLCC: It will be integrated with the human brain. Brains will be networked together with supercomputers. That's the capitalist military's vision.
